Questions:-  (This review is from the point of view of motorhomers driving a Swift Kontiki 669 tag axle – 8.56m)

What are the pitches like?                

Hardstandings + grass area for tents.  Plenty big enough.  The pitches are at the back of a working farm facing old farm buildings with a hedge behind.  You need to walk down the lane a little to see any views!

Is there water on each pitch?            

No – 1 tap centrally located.  No problems

What is the electric like?           

10A– we had no problems


By the tap

What’s the site access like?        

Access is good from the main road.   It is the lane AFTER the level crossing.  The lane is potholey – it does lead to a working farm.  However, on the day we left the holes were being filled in, so this does get addressed.

What are the Sanitary facilities like?     

Toilets:                              1 toilet, fully enclosed behind the farmhouse.   This is cleaned daily (unlike some certificated sites we’ve stayed on).

Toilet paper provided? Yes – plentiful

Showers:                          No shower on this site

What other facilities are there?    

Bins and CWD

Information room and book swap (in the toilet)


We paid £14 per night including electric.

What’s the area like?            

Close to the busy railway line.  However, although this occasionally shook the van, it didn’t actually bother us at all.  It is about 4 miles from the village on Holy Island – we cycled; there’s a good path as far as the causeway and then you’re on the road, but it’s not overly busy.

There is a pub at the junction with the A1 (about a mile away) as well as a garage (with a shop).  It’s not far at all from Berwick on Tweed with plenty of takeaway and eating options.

With the A1 close by there are lots of places accessible – there’s plenty to do 🙂


We liked:-

The area


The access

The peace and quiet (apart from the trains!)

We didn’t like so much:-

The cars from the house behind the site tended to drive a little fast through it


We hated:-
